Best 120mm fan to replace bad Tuniq Tower fan

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
As the title reads I have a Tuniq Tower with a bad fan and I was wondering what the best replacement fan would be? Open to multiple suggestions, sound isn't a huge issue, but quality is a must b/c I really don't wanna tear into this thing every 6 months. Thanks

Scythe Kaze 1900 RPM puts out over 100cfm.

I replaced my once with a FM121. You just have to make sure the fan is 120mm by 25mm.

If you want to go for an even faster fan, get the 3000 RPM Scythe. I just got it and it's awesome, but loud as hell. I underestimated the amount of noise this thing can make. I'm thinking about connecting it to my motherboard so I can lower the speed.

That or get a fan controller

Thanks for the responses,
How about this one for starts, I looked at the scythe "Kraze" and the one on the egg was 120mm x 34mm so according to Danbeme that's a shade to wide.

If im not mistaken, the Scythe Ultra Kaze is 120mmx38mm, and that wouldn't fit in the Tuniq since it requires 120mmx25mm.

And that's why the 1900RPM one wins.

I have one in my Tuniq and it dropped the temps ~3c.

Yup but his sig says he has Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro and I think you can mount any with fan on that thing (If I remember correctly ?).

I couldn't find that one on new egg, am I just blind or is it somewhere else ?

I was told that I wouldn't see a difference adding a FM121 onto my TT, to replace the stock fan?
